Purim Glogg

Ingredients 

Purim Glogg

750 ml (25 fl oz) dry red wine (1 regular bottle)

½ cup gin or vodka

½ cup raisins (optional)

1/3 cup sugar

Peel of one orange (use a vegetable peeler to remove only the rind of the orange – no white)

2 large cinnamon sticks broken up

2 cardamom pods opened up

6 whole cloves

How to do it

1. In a large pot or saucepan, stir together the wine, vodka/gin, sugar and raisins.

2. Please the orange peel, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom in a spice bag (you can make this using a piece of doubled over cheese cloth, placing the spices in the middle, bringing the corners together and tying it up with a piece of clean string); or you can be lazy and throw it all in the pot and strain the liquid when you are done. Please the spices in the pot and bring the mixture to a simmer, without boiling. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Remove the spice bag or strain the liquid, and discard the spices.

3. Serve in a punch bowl or in a metal bowl that you can keep warm over a flame.

Serves about 8. Warning: This drink packs a punch!
